Aluminum motor mount for Parkzone T28 / Corsair 3530/3536/3542 series motors

Aluminum motor mount for Parkzone T28 / Corsair 3530/3536/3542 series motors

This is a custom machined aluminum motor mount for the Parkzone Corsair and T-28. It is designed to adapt a range of 3530, 3536 and 3542 size brushless motors to these Parkzone planes for an excellent upgrade in performance.

One of the key features to this mount is that it utilizes the stock plastic mount as a buffer zone in the event of a crash. The very inexpensive and easily replaceable stock plastic mount should take the impact instead of damaging the planes fuselage. No cowl modifications are necessary for the 3530 and 3536 series of motors, simply bolt on and you are ready to fly.

Three step installation (detailed pictures below):
1. Attach new motor to aluminum mount with the motors supplied screws
2. Attach Parkzone stock plastic mount using the original motor screws
3. Attach entire assembly to the planes fuselage with the original mounting screws
For proper cowl to propeller clearance on the 3530 and 3536 motors that utilize the bolt on propeller shaft you will use the supplied prop spacer plus the flat washer that comes with the new motor as shown in the pictures below. If using a standard motor shaft, or pressing the shaft forward on the motors utilizing a bolt on shaft, a standard collet adapter will work. The stock Corsair / T28 spinner nut will typically work to give you more of a scale look if desired. Please note, with the T-28 if using the bolt on propeller shaft style motor you will need to either press the motor shaft forward and use a standard collet (the stock one works great), or slightly enlarge the cowl opening to use the bolt on propeller shaft.


Compatible Motors (3530 Series):
Turnigy 35-30C 1100KV (and other KV options)
Heads Up RC 3530-11
RC Timer BC3530-14 1100KV
and others in the 3530 series with the 19mm x 25mm bolt pattern

Compatible Motors (3536 series):
Turnigy 35-36C 1100KV (and other KV options)
Heads Up RC 3536-10
Exceed RC Alpha 480 1020KV
RC Timer BC3536-6 1250KV
and others in the 3536 series with the 19mm x 25mm bolt pattern
For those that want an extreme upgrade in performance, choose one of the 3542 series motors . The cowl will need to be modified to accommodate these larger motors by slightly enlarging the front opening. The included propeller spacer may or may not be needed depending on which propeller is chosen. Please note that these 3542 motors may exceed the capability of the planes airframe. Special care should be taken when flying at the extreme speeds these planes will be capable of.


Compatible Motors (3542 series):
Turnigy 35-42C 1100KV (and other KV options)
Heads Up RC 3542-10
Exceed RC Monster Power 10 1100KV
RC Timer BC3542-6 1000KV
and others in the 3542 series with the 19mm x 25mm bolt pattern

Propeller Compatibility:
Stock 2 blade T28 / Corsair 9.5x7.5
Stock 3 blade T28 / Corsair 9x7.5
Stock 2 blade P51 9x6
MAS 10x7x3
There are quite a few other options and will continue updating the list as they are tested

The fit and quality of these mounts are excellent. These are manufactured by smallpartsCNC which I own and operate. To reduce cost, these come in bare aluminum as shown in the photos.
Included: 1 Parkzone Corsair / T-28 Aluminum Motor Mount. with propeller spacer. Weight: 7g (3530) and 5g (3536/42)
Price is $14.00 ea. with a fixed shipping of $2.00 in the US and $4.00 International. Send me a PM if you are interested or have any other questions.

Thanks for looking!

No, you haven't missed anything.

This is a motor mount designed to adapt a range of 3530, 3536 and 3542 size brushless motors while utilizing the stock plastic motor mount as a crash buffer.

It gives the proper spacing and correct bolt patterns for these after market motors.

Dennis, you don't want an all aluminum motor mount. In the event of a crash, you want the plastic mount to break and absorb some of the impact rather than drive the whole assembly into the fuselage. These look like they give you the ability to mount other motor options besides the stock Parkzone 480. I like this idea and I am considering purchasing two (one for my Corsair and one for my T-28).

The only issue i have with this setup is as we were modifing our corsairs with anything much more that the stock motor we were braking the stock mounts in flight , let alone during a crash , ive flown mine with as much as 1800 watts with a gps speed of 148 mph , toned down now to 1100 watts and near 120 mph , stock plastic mount wont take that ......

Dennis, I don't really think the rest of the plane is designed for that kind of extreme speed either, but WOW that would be cool to see!

Motor Mount

Wow!. I'd like to see a corsair doing 148.

This mount is perfect for it's intensions. Simply to put a Hong Kong motor on your foamie to go faster, fly higher. Works great, holes match up, takes minutes to mount and incorporates the stock mount in case of the unthinkable. Why you dogging Sotog? I have an alfa version of Sotog's mounts. Great product at a fair price.

Here is out T-28. We could only squeeze 109 mph out of her. Can't imagine 148

I agree that the stock plastic mount may not hold up to 1800 watts, or even 1100 watts. In those situations, a custom one piece aluminum mount would probably be the right choice.

And with the intentions of my mount, protecting the fuselage in the event of a crash, at 148mph, there is nothing that would protect the fuselage in the event of a crash!

I've had a lot of positive feedback with these mounts and use them on my own plane. It does work well with the common 35-36 and even the 35-42 size motors that many owners upgrade to.

That 109mph video is very impressive! The sound alone is amazing.

For the average flyer that wants to add something like a Turnigy 3536 or the 3530 (me) to a PZ Corsair without modding the cowl, this is the ticket.

I use one on both my PZ corsair and PZ P51 BL with the 3536c
All the motors listed by Sotog fit this mod, heck where else are we going to get that many motor options with just one purchase.

This is a very well thought out add on.
Plug and Play, my type of mod.

Serasbach, I use a Turnigy 60 amp plush, this give me plenty of prop options and wiggle room that allows me not to have to worry about a seperate BEC.
For batteries I am using Turnigy nano tech 3S 2200 45 90c and lightning power 3S 35c 2200's. I tried Blue Lipo 3s 2200 25c but this setup can make them hot without a lot of throttle management

I have someone testing this out for me right now. It will bolt right onto the stock plastic mount. I am 99% sure it will work just fine if you use the Wildcat collet adapter.

The only question is if the typical "bolt on" propeller shaft will clear the cowl. But again, if you don't use this bolt on shaft and simply use the 4mm motor shaft and slip the stock collet over it, this should work fine.

And their is always the option of opening up the cowl if the bolt on shaft is to close.

I'll post back on here when I have a definite answer.

I like the stock 3s setup with the 3 blade prop but would like just a smidge more speed and to not have to worry about the crummy plastic stock motor dying.

Which motor do you recommend?

Almost forgot! I also really like the look of the stock prop nut, so is there any way to use this? I see that the HK motor also has a 4mm shaft but can it be installed backwards and use the stock prop adapter?

I would recommend one of the 3530 series motors. These seem to be more of a stock replacement with a bit more power. The 3536 series is probably one or two steps above the stock motor with quite a bit more power.

Since the stock motor is 960KV, a 3530 with 1100KV will spin a bit faster and give you that extra speed. Should work great with the stock ESC and 3S battery.

Mount

Used mine with a 5642 Turnigy on a Wildcat and didn't even have to do any trimming.
